This was a good BBQ restaurant in Dubuque. It's in an interesting part of town that we weren't familiar with prior to this visit. Thank goodness for our GPS! The brisket and fries were very tasty and everyone was there was friendly. I do recommend visiting this restaurant when you visit Dubuque.

If you like the sweeter bbq sauce you'll love their ribs. Their tips were frozen and put in the microwave, the sausage link was just plain nasty, some liked the beans, i thought they were mushy. Slaw was just ok. Service was excellent. Place was clean.

This meal was delicious! Everything was home-cooked and was so good! We had fried chicken, mac and cheese, pulled pork, and of course tried the desserts such as sweet potato pie and caramel cake! Everything was delicious and we will definitely be back to try again! The owner was also super sweet and helpful!
